One of Austin’s most burgeoning and growing areas, the “Eastside”, makes up the area of downtown east of I-35 to Airport Boulevard, and East Martin Luther King Jr. south to the Colorado River. The 78702 zip code comprises the neighborhoods of East 6th, Holly, Govalle, East Ceasar Chavez, Chestnut, East 11th Street and various interconnected neighborhoods in between.
As an up and coming area, the 78702 zip code is currently seeing a huge revitalization as an influx of nightlife, restaurants, luxury condos, and new homes is sweeping the area. Major developments are also in the works along East 6th Street and along the I-35 access road for luxury condos, entertainment spots and hotels. While the area is comprised heavily of young professionals, many new families are living in the area.
